English translation:trehalose
Explanation:
I guess it is a typo, and should have read 'trehalosa'. In English that would be 'trehalose'.
I am no expert at all, but I know that a way to 'type' bacteria is to test which carbohydrates they can ferment - trehalose is one of those carbohydrates.
For example, on p21 of the following thesis is says
Los miembros del género salmonela ... también fermentan L-Arabinosa, maltosa, ..., trehalosa, D-xilosa ...
